  • 1 box of yellow cake mix
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 4 eggs
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 4 cups powdered sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9x13 baking pan.
  • Mix together the cake mix, 2 eggs, and melted butter.
  • Spread this mixture into the bottom of the pan as your "crust" layer.
  • Mix together cream cheese, powdered sugar, and remaining two eggs.
  • Spread this mixture evenly over the crust layer.
  • Bake 35-40 minutes, until top and edges are golden brown and center is set. (It should be set, but not too firm.)
  • Allow to cool before serving. Store in the refrigerator.
